I did 123 on I-90 this summer in my Legacy. Then my engine did the same thing it does in Gran Turismo when your car tops off. Reeerrreeerreeeerrr!

I've done:
158 on my R-6
115 in my Fiero
125 in my Firebird

My friend has a GSXR 1000 he's been 164, but the crazy thing is he was in 4th gear with 2000 RPM left before redline!

The scariest thing though was going 80 in my 1979 Blazer, all of the steering bushings were worn out and it walked badly. The only time I thought I was going to die.

I've taken my car to around 162 when it actually stopped and started to slow to top out at 131mph. I found out later I had blown a spark plug. I thougt the Turbo was dead. But the turbo has nothing to do with Top Speed. It just gets u there much faster. I've raced cars from Mustangs, to Suped up Eclipse and Accords with only 5 spark plugs. Still left them in the dust. I changed the plugs and so i'm taking on Vipers and Vettes again. Looking to upgrade to a stage "3" mod for my 911. That will give me about 500hp with a dual Turbo. 0-60 should rocket me into the 3.9 range. i can hit 0-60 now after service in about 4.5 second range.

144 in my '88 RX7 (no turbo). On 24 East in CA bay area (pretty flat stretch of freeway) at roughly 1:30 am. This was the absolute limit of my car.

I did 15mph through a car park in my dad's Clio
Didn't even press the accelerator, just let go of the clutch and rolled...
(If you're 13)Since you can drive on your own land or someone elses with there permission but not on the road. Could a 13 yr old drive at a race track with the track owners permission???????
Just asking

146+ in my Dodge Spirit R/T. Top speed run with a Northstart Caddy. He hit a brick wall at 146 (limited I assume) I was still pulling ahead. Can you say flying phone booth.

Let's say for a moment that your serious, which I asuume you are NOT. There is No track existing in the United States that will let a 13yrold, or non-licenses driver as a matter of a fact, get behind of the wheel of a car and race down it. Maybe in France, Russia, or some God awful African nation where they just don't care, but not here kid. So I suggest that you sit back, enjoy being fresh out of your pre-teens, and wait for your turn.

Well, in my '94 Grand Prix SE coupe, I saw 115 on the interstate on my way back from Jacksonville, AL. I had been to the Regional Basketball tourney my senior year, and my dad had told me my car had a speed limiter, probably around 93mph. Me and my friends decided to give it a shot, and we had the speedo maxed out, cause it only went to 115.

In the '97 Bonneville SSE, I probably saw 75-80, never gave it a shot.

In my '97 GTP, I've seen 93, couldn't go any faster cause my friend in his '92 Camaro RS was in front of me, and apparently he got scared at 93 and wouldn't go any faster. Supposedly, the speed limiter on this car is 126, but I haven't got on the interstate and maxed it out yet I can tell you that at 93, she's still got plenty more to give!
